An Ed Dubois design for Westerly, the Westerly Merlin is a modern-styled yacht with good accommodation and sailing performance, plus Westerly's solid build quality. This 1986 bilge keel example is well equipped and has just been launched for the 2016 season, but is now for sale due to health issues. Her present mooring at Mylor can be available for the 2016 and 2017 seasons if required.

Keel type

Twin iron bilge keels and transom-hung rudder

Built from 1984 to 1992, the Westerly Merlin was the second design that Westerly commissioned from Ed Dubois, with the aim of higher performance and a more modern and spacious hull form than the Laurent Giles designed Konsort. Although smaller than a Konsort, the Merlin has what may for most people be a better interior, with a good sized double aft berth and 6 ft headroom in the saloon. The Merlin is also regarded as being generally faster than the Konsort. Merlins were built with fin or bilge keels, the plan at left showing the bilge keel version, as in this yacht for sale.

About 170 were built during the production run, and like all Westerlys the hulls were moulded to Lloyds standards, and each hull issued with a Lloyds Hull Construction certificate. At different times various interior finishes were used, many, like this yacht for sale, having light ash wood bulkheads.
